Argentina start their World Cup campaign against Saudi Arabia, with the World Cup 2022 potentially being Lionel Messi’s last chance of securing international gold. See what Last Word on Football predicts from the opening match of Group C, and how Argentina vs Saudi Arabia will go.
Argentina vs Saudi Arabia – Predictions and Best Odds
Argentina Current Run of Form
Argentina are looking to continue an incredible run of form in this World Cup. La Albiceleste haven’t lost a single match since 2019, including the entirety of the World Cup qualifying campaign and the most recent Copa America.
Saudi Arabia Current Run of Form
Saudi Arabia are expected to do their best at the World Cup 2022, but do so without being on the best of form. The Middle Eastern side has only two victories in the last five matches, narrow wins over North Macedonia and Iceland, both 1-0. Al-Saqour haven’t won a match with more than one goal since October 2021.
The Saudis are good at keeping the score down, but they haven’t faced a challenge of a similar calibre since the 2018 World Cup.
Recent Head to Head
Saudi Arabia and Argentina have only faced off once, in an international friendly in 2012. The result was a relatively flat 0-0 draw, with nothing remarkable happening throughout.
Argentina vs Saudi Arabia Prediction
Whilst Saudi Arabia is normally used to a Persian Gulf, the gulf in quality between these sides is arguably larger than even that. Expect an absolute demolition job, with Lionel Messi looking to kick off his final World Cup campaign with a hammering. 5-0 to Argentina, and even that could be a kind prediction.
